CAR ACCIDENTS | New York Personal Injury Attorney - Trial Lawyer Steve Williamson


The commonly used term “car accident” refers to a motor vehicle collision. In most cases, collisiona are not true accidents. Rather, most motor vehicle collisions are the result of negligence.

In recent years, the most common causes of collisions include texting while driving, distracted driving, driving while drowsy, speeding, and driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol. According to AAA, a fatigued driver can be just as dangerous as an impaired driver and excessive speed contributes to as many collisions each year as drunk driving.

In some cases, collisions are not completely the fault of the drivers. There may be a defective road or a road that is poorly designed. Construction work can cause hazards on the road. An experienced personal injury attorney may be able to hold the government or a nearby property owner liable for injuries arising out of defective road conditions.

Victims of collisions can suffer physical injuries as well as psychological trauma, resulting in disability, medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering and a diminished quality of life. The law recognizes the impact a collision can have on peoples’ lives and provides the means for seeking compensation from the responsible party or parties.

The collision itself is only the beginning of what can be an extremely long process of filing insurance claims, determining fault and, most importantly, getting the closure one needs to move on with life. Taking on an insurance company and the legal system can be daunting. Steve Williamson will help you obtain the compensation you deserve while you focus on your recovery.
